Aisha Yesufu Urges Youth not to Relent in Pursuit for Justice and Good Governance


One of the well-known activitist of the #EndSARS protest, Aisha Yesufu has strongly advised that Nigerian youths should not give up in their pursuit for justice and good governance.

Yesufu, the co-convener of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement stated that on this week’s episode of the #EndSARS special edition of #WithChude staged on Tuesday, October 27.

According to her, “The fact is that the Nigerian youth now have a voice and nobody can call them lazy again. They have gotten the government where they wanted them to be.

“Despite the use of brute force and using their normal shenanigans to bring in thugs, this movement remains unwavering. You have to understand that this is a Marathon, it is not a sprint. We need to keep going,” she asserted.

While talking about how she navigates the several bouts of criticism she currently faces as a female Muslim activist, Aisha stated, “Insults and praises are people’s opinion and they are not my reality – opinions like, you are supposed to be a Muslim woman, you are not supposed to talk, and you are not supposed to have a voice, but, one of the things that I have used, even as a child, is the power of knowledge.”
